  • A. Garrett House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

Each facade of this engaging one-and-a-half-story Gothic Revival cottage is gabled, and the gable eaves are decorated with a filigreelike bargeboard. On the right side of the house is a long angular bay covered by a concave roof. There is a large cut-out wood cartouche where the peak of this roof joins the house.
